How’d these two end up on opposite sides of the desk, you ask? Behold, the cover predictably adorned with the image of my own beloved boss for having the wingnutty gall to object to illegal aliens convicted of crimes in the U.S. being released after serving their time instead of deported and then proceeding to commit new and ever more exciting crimes. A sample quote from the report’s “Fear, Anger, and Hate” section. Have you ever?

The never-ending criminal alien revolving door — that’s the subject of this evening’s ‘Talking Points Memo.’ Here we go again — another heinous crime, another illegal alien suspect with a mile-long rap sheet, another bloody tragedy wrought by open borders.” — The O’Reilly Factor, August 10, 2007

I’m not totally unsympathetic to Waldman, actually; Dobbs dips his toe into the pool of immigration conspiracy theories too often for my liking. But the left is so pitiful and disingenuous on the subject of criminal illegal aliens — as you’ll see in clip two, where Waldman has the unholy nerve to scold him for calling so much attention to otherwise preventable crimes — that I can’t help but exult in the berating. Thirteen minutes. Enjoy.
